Off-Dry Whites I've Recently Sipped

Rank Wine Rating Price
1 Francois Cotat Sancerre la Grande Cote (2010)
Comments: A very cool wine, but nowhere near a classic Sancerre and bearing little resemblance to Sauvignon Blanc. With Cotat, it's like Sancerre has moved east to Alsace...will the wine be dry or sweet? Better for paté than asparagus!
Previously available for $69.99

2 Christoph Von Nell Riesling Halbtrocken Deutscher Sekt (2002)
Comments: A supremely elegant sparkling Riesling from the Mosel, this is nothing like other Sekt's I've tasted. Whereas many Sekt's are lean on flavor, this one is cram packed.

3 Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Alsace Aoc Clos Häuserer (2007)
Comments: An "Indice 4", this wine is actually considered "sweet" by Olivier. Fair enough...but it was so lovely, I had to include it in this list. Everything Gewurz should be - rosewater and lychee on the palate with a hint of unctuousness that never turns cloying.

4 Fritz Haag Riesling Estate Feinherb (2011)
Comments: Gentle residual sugar helps tame the elevated, mouth-watering acidity. The aromas are loaded with baby's breath, soft-stemmed herbs and flint.
List It
5 Kruger-Rumpf Scheurebe Kabinett (2008)
Comments: Bursting with aromas and a touch of sweetness, this is a terrific change from Riesling for a hot summer day. Sage, hazelnut and lemon pulp are just a few of the many aromas to pick up from the glass.
